After owning more cars than I like to admit, this is a pleasure,fun,family car.Sporty,FAST & classy to boot.Love the speed and beautiful interior.Feels more expensive than it is.Rear seats fold down easily for hauling.The 4 motion saved me the 2nd day I owned it.This car has spoiled me for anything else.Own a Jetta too& will always have a VW in my garage!!

2004 Volkswagen Passat Wagon GLX Fwd 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We bought the Passat after trying out over 8 different models/makes. We selected it because it offered all the features we had to have in a car; safety, economy, comfort, fun, and looks great. The kids love it and are excited for their friends to see it- no wonder, it's a beautiful car. The Passat is smater than the humans that drive/ride in it- seats molding to your own body, remembering you when you return- even if someone else has taken your place before. Hopefully this car will last as long as the 17 year old Saab we traded in.


Best Features

Awesome front end; solar panal will boost/recharge battery; the car is smarter than the humans inside- loaded with state of the art safety features; stops on a dime at any speed- no skidding.The computer system allows you to track mpg,mph,temp and more many features of your dr


Worst Features

Add a little space for storage for the drivers junk, make the back end look as amazing as the front end. Keep everything else the same!

Review

this car has had the onstar computer replaced 4 times and still has the same problem VW blames onstar. VW is aware of a hard downshift problem for over 6 months all they tell the owner is they are waiting for the program from Germany. It dos't take that long to build a car.


Best Features

none


Worst Features

correct the problems before you deliver a car to consumer

Review

I have 30,000 miles on my 03 and have no major prolems. Handles very well in the snow and the ride is very good on rough roads. Gas milage on the highway is 30 mpg or better. I have a manual and get 20 mpg or better in city driving. If you drive the car hard and fast you will not get good gas mileage something like 18/24. The Passat runs better on premium, enough that I feel it.


Best Features

The Passat has all the safety features that the rich get in their cars. Side Curtain Air Bags standard and EPS for less than $500 is a steal.


Worst Features

Trunk should unlock with doors. It is very inconvenent to unlock the trunk everytime you need to open it.
